Well, I have a great dane.

It fails to say how I slobber just like my dane, or, how I can devour huge amounts of food rather quickly.

Other than that, rather accurate!

Multiple personality disorder?

What about people who don't like dogs?

Then that would make you an agreeable, conscientiousness, creative, intelligent extrovert who ranges between times of great emotional stability and instability - depending on what your 5 dogs are doing at the time!

This just made me realize..I'm not a terrier person (hate the pushy personality) and now that I think about it none of my good friends happen to own that type of dog. I like herding breeds mostly but sporting and working breeds also click with me.

I worked in a grooming salon and that experience taught me that little dog owners are over-bearing and tend to lean toward the dramatic side..Every last one of them, NO exceptions. (no offense intended little dog owners ) If you really think about it those traits also go along with intelligence and creativity.

I wonder what this implies about cat v. dog people?

Maybe combos suggest issues with duality?

I have a boxer with a little bit of pit in him.

He is on the border of figuring out how to use a tool to get what he wants. I have seen him use his rubber tire to push a ball out from under a couch that he could not get with his paws. He also holds his bones between his paws like a baby would hold a bottle.

Remarkable. They are listed as a work dog, but he shows his intelligence at play only.

My GSD thinks I'm away from home too much.
Even if I just pop over to the shop for a paper he acts like I've been gone a month.
I don't think I'm an extrovert though.

That is why most dogs don't have to work for a living. They are just so pleased to see you that we are happy to have them around.

I guess it is quite spot on, in my case


Conscientiousness
